Jazz Currents

Ride the Jazz Currents. These currents flow back to the early sources of modern jazz and forward to the sounds that will shape the music of tomorrow. They are electric currents and acoustic. They flow in the mainstream and they skirt the edges. 

At Tuesday night's Jazz in June concert, Tom Ineck will present singer Jazzmeia Horn with the Jazz Journalists Association award for Up and Coming Musician of the Year. He interviewed Horn regarding her June 12 performance at Jazz in June in Lincoln. Click here to listen to their conversation.
